This is more of a new-ish model release of the John Deere R450 self propelled windrower. With Case IH and New Holland versions recently released it would be unlike John Deere to not have a toy version of their own hardware on the market. This toy features free rolling rubber wheels, clear cab glass, and realistic graphics and details. For about $8 this a very nice model with great detail.

While traveling through northern Michigan I stumbled across this bale pickup wagon. I have seen several of these in real life, but this one was in great shape. I have seen a few toy replicas of these, but I have yet to try it for myself. I will definitely be on the lookout for one of these at the National Farm Toy Show which starts officially in about 40 hours.
In the spirit of Halloween week (AKA I forgot to post this on Halloween) here is a picture of a tractor tat I took when I was buying pumpkins this year. The sign was in the same guys yard and I thought it was appropriate for the blog.
